Meetings & Events Australia is keeping exhibition stand rates low, at $3500 + GST, for its Event Show Sydney set down for September 1 and 2 at Royal Randwick.

MEA CEO Linda Gaunt said there will be just 80 booths available, and while exhibitors from around Australia will be able to have custom stands, the focus will be on uniformity to ensure that the business agenda of the show is maintained.

“This show will not be a one hit wonder,” Ms Gaunt said.

“Many associations run exhibitions and this event is something that we have been considering for some time.

“We believe it is extremely affordable for exhibitors. We didn’t want to create a show where the cost of participating was a major factor.

“It is open to exhibitors from around Australia who want to target the Sydney corporate market.”

Ms Gaunt said the event is about growing the MEA offering to its members as well as encouraging others to join and be part of a growing network of business professionals with a common goal to build their business.

The Event Show Sydney will be held at Royal Randwick on September 1 and 2.

Partners include micenet, Executive PA, Saxton Speakers Bureau, Exponet and Royal Randwick.
